Gaza frontman accused of rape
2013-01-17 by Kris. | 293 Comments

In an unsettling and sad turn of events, Gaza's frontman Jon Parkin has been faced with
allegations of raping a Boise, ID. woman while she was asleep in September of 2012. The
woman did not go to the police, however, and has taken to Tumblr to spread her story and attempt to bring justice to Parkin.

Her story can be read here:

http://amindfullofyou.tumblr.com/post/40662972784/jon-parkin-from-gaza-is-a-fucking-rapist-tw-detailed

Parkin has taken to Gaza's official Facebook page to vehemently deny the accusations,
releasing this statement.

Let me first say that this rape allegation is entirely untrue. Throwing this sort of
accusation up on the internet is reckless and completely slanderous. Two of my very close
friends have been raped and it was devastating to watch them go through the recovery
process, one of which I spent a summer helping through counseling. I went with her to the clinic to get her AIDS test results. Rape infuriates me, and I never see red like I do when I hear about it. This is not a subject or an accusation I take lightly. Anyone who knows me personally knows that I could never and would never force myself on anybody.

I'm sorry that you all have to be part of this drama, but this has to be addressed. This
mess in no way has anything to do with the band and I'm sorry for the other members as this is a black mark on us that is undeserved and untrue. Women’s rights and all forms of social justice are causes we champion. I would encourage this person as well as any other who feel they have been assaulted to go immediately to the police.

I think he's innocent. Sounds like some bitch going to the internet to spread attention seeking stories. If she were raped, she'd stay quiet about it or go to the cops. This is disgusting.

"Sounds like some bitch going to the internet to spread attention seeking stories"

alright that's still fine I guess cause you said "sounds like"

"If she were raped, she'd stay quiet about it or go to the cops. This is disgusting."

and you lost it, jumping straight to conclusions and making strong judgements based on minimal information.

I know many people who have been raped. It's not something they go to tumblr about to petition for apologies. They're scarred by it severely. My cousin is so suicidal because she's been raped several times. I have no doubt in my mind this bitch is just seeking attention.

I mean, seriously, she claims she was raped. She knows the guy's identity. SHE HAS EVIDENCE, SUPPOSEDLY.

If she was actually raped: go to the police, show them the texts he sent her.

OR: use the texts to blackmail to get what she wants.


But no, she went to tumblr to make wild claims with no evidence to back it up.

"Rapists shouldn’t be allowed to exist in the hardcore/punk scene. Don’t support Gaza until they either kick Jon out, or Jon goes through the accountability process outlined above.
There are a few things you can do to support me. Spread this around far and wide. Tell your friends who go to shows to be wary of him. (He met me when I was tabling for my zine distro at one of his shows). Don’t support Gaza. Don’t book shows for them. Don’t buy their merch. Don’t support a band who’s front man claims to be all about social justice but is actually a rapist. Let Gaza know that you won’t support their band until Jon leaves or goes through an accountability process. Here is their facebook and tumblr. "

What would happen if instead of making rape statistics about the victims, we made them about the perpetrators? I’d love to see some fucking posters that point out the fact that somewhere between 1 in 25 and 1 in 12 men are rapists. Or that 35% of men say they would rape if they knew they could get away with it.

I think we’d start seeing social change a lot faster if we starting pointing out that rapists are people we know and love; they are people in our families, our friends, our classmates, and our coworkers. And that is fucked up.


One in three guys would rape someone. Hard facts people.

I don't get why someone so socially active and knowledgeable about "rape culture" wouldn't go to the police and have a rape kit done. There, done. DNA evidence. And, her "lol"ing at a guy calling them "third rate Botch rip offs", she seems real upset at the moment. I don't want to sound like an apologist, but an accusation does not a conviction make.

But since there is (at this point) no reason to doubt this woman's very detailed story, his bandmates should not continue until, at the very least, he passes a polygraph test.

I don't think her method of calling attention to this is at all messed up. At this point there is no physical evidence or witnesses, so calling the cops would be a useless, emotionally taxing ordeal. Calling him (and Gaza) out on social media gets the word out in the scene and is the quickest way to get him to admit it, or to get Gaza to kick him out.

Jon's statement says that he thinks she should go to the police but as it happened several months ago it would be obviously nigh-impossible to prove (which he is likely aware of)

It'll be a hard case proving either side.

Her accusation sounds completely fake. You wouldn't BLOG this to the world if you got raped, you would go to the police.

If it's true why is there no police action (or, seeing as it's on Tumblr, is it a "social justice warrior" with their own warped definition of "rape")? Something's not right here.

Exactly. It's totally okay to be out about how you're a misandrist, but how dare anyone have questions to your very feminist-leaning story about rape? I can't say if anything she says or he says is true, but I know the type of girl she self-admittedly claims to be.

If she started saying this shit on tumblr instead of going to police like a normal person should (and would) chances are she's lying. I'm not sure if she's revealed her name at any point, but if she hasn't, even more evidence that she's probably lying. Think about it, if nobody knows her name, and people discover this is all bullshit, well, she can just disappear off the internet for a while and nobody would ever know who it was.

I've had friends that have been raped. When they did tell people, it was close friends and family. They didn't get on tumblr and start parading it around on the internet.

Okay, if her dad or someone got murdered, she wouldn't call 911? Would she be too anti-authoritarian
and proud to do that? You're fucking kidding me. I bet she lives off government handouts anyways.

If what she is saying is genuinely true then she has gone the completely wrong way about this and is
setting a horrible precedent. She should have gone through the police if she wishes for her claims
to be actually taken seriously, and the fact that there is not a single mention about them in her
blog post does not paint a pretty picture.

Just recently a man was beaten to death in the UK because someone had accused him of rape, only for
the accuser to later admit the allegations were actually false and that she had made them completely
up.

I'm quoting this from some guy's coment on their facebook page:



"First- a lot of people are saying shit along the lines, "there is no evidence that Jon DIDN'T rape her! he's just denying it!" Sorry, but she's the one making the claim. THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON HER! A Tumblr rant with a story ending by telling everyone to attack the band is hardly proof. Honestly, she comes off as extremely biased against both Jon and the band right out of the gates.

Second- (from her Tumblr post) "Rapists shouldn't be allowed to exist in the hardcore/punk scene". I truly hope that she doesn't think this is the only place they shouldn't exist. I'm sure if asked to clarify she would say "Of course not!". But my point is this: This tumblr post is horribly written and it clearly isn't very well thought out. It seems like more of an attempt to bring the band down. Actually, it outright is. If she wanted Jon "brought to justice", she should have done the reasonable thing and gone to the police.

Myrkur
January 17th 2013

Third- (also a direct quote from her post) "If you’re going to be a rape apologist and say that what happened wasn't rape, just stop now. I don’t want to hear it. I know I was raped, and I don’t give a fuck what you say". This statement speaks volumes. The utter refusal to "give a fuck" what anyone says tells me that she will bury her head in the sand given any evidence to the contrary of what she believes. For example, being a 'rape apologist' and denying that her story is true are two completely different things. To sum up what I mean by that: I'm not defending her alleged rapist, I'm denying that her story is true. I'm not defending rape by denying an accusation of it. A rape apologist is a horrible thing to be. Asking an accuser to 'prove it' is RATIONAL. But I guess she doesn't 'give a fuck', right?

And last, but certainly not least- a rather disturbing and glaring mark of her character- her 'demands':

"I want to put him through an accountability process that involves Jon:
A ) apologizing both publicly and through a letter for raping me,
B ) reading and understanding books and zines about consent and rape and
C ) quitting Gaza until he deals with his shit"

A ) When dealt with legally, rapists are afforded that opportunity by the judicial system, right before being legitimately punished.
B ) Oh so you think zines (like yours maybe!) and books about rape are the right way to deal with rapists because
C ) 'dealing with his shit' would be all that he needs to do?

So rapists just need to apologize, read zines and books, and deal with their shit? I FEEL LIKE I'M ON CRAZY PILLS READING THIS!

I'm certain this comment won't change anything, and the accuser will never read it, but I'm absolutely infuriated by this. I don't know where else to speak what I'm thinking about all of this so here it is... A comment among hundreds to a response by a band in reply to an accusation of rape by some (as far as I can tell) dumb girl in Boise. Fuck. Good luck dealing with this, Jon."



And that's exactly how I feel about this case

Myrkur, This is exactly what I'm arguing. It seems too pre-plannes, it seems like she has covered every base in which anyone can question her. She let time lapse so there can be no physical evidence. These texts she supposedly has are not printed, which seems crazy to me since people are asking her for evidence left and right. She is trying to push an agenda and found a mark to fulfill it with. If I'm wrong, I'll admit it, I will deplore his actions, I'll be sickened by the whole situation; but there is absolutely no evidence of anything right now except defamation of Jon. I am a survivor of long-time sexual abuse and was accused of rape in high school (which was later recanted by the girl) and I still carry a really unseemly nickname in my hometown for it.

The whole way this has been posted is dodgy. It's too calculated and detailed. I know rape victims often have trouble reporting it but surely that would apply to speaking out on the internet as well. If anything, that'd be even harder to do and it feels like there's too much conviction in this post.
And not going to the police cos you're an "anarchist" is bullshit. The whole way it's been done is geared towards people just accepting her word without her having to prove anything and it feels like the band/frontman being shunned is her prime target, rather than him just generally being exposed.
Only thing that really seems convincing about the post is the oddities; dunno if some of the things in this story would be the first things to come to your head if you making it up (such as it happening when she was sleeping and him not being painted as pure brute evil in the scenario), although maybe they would be for someone determined and sly enough to make it seem convincing

But there's nothing to be done until actual evidence is given.

Since someone already said it. This woman is pretty big in the blog world and feminist circles.

She says in the story about how she was taking part in her Slut Walk, my friend was one of the organizers of Slut Walk in D.C.. Word from people that knew her was that she had talked about taking "down a band that is misogynistic but wraps themselves in socially liberal ideals. It will bring attention to rape apologists and rape culture in general.". This IS all third-hand statement, but it's starting to get attention. This is simply a ploy for her to sell more of her product and to give her legitimacy in what she writes about. Again, just for the sake of not starting a fight, if I am wrong, I will eat my words.

The person who is absolutely my closest and dearest friend, whom I love very deeply has dealt with abuse of this sort, which almost resulted in rape... horrible stuff. You can see the pain in their eyes, and they try to bury it every day.

I believe this woman is faking it. I know numerous individuals who have been raped and they keep their stories shut up tighter than the Hoover Dam. It's not something they tell really anyone about because they feel deeply ashamed and hurt by it. No way would they ever go on Tumblr, or any public forum, and talk about it. Heck, they don't even go to police because they're so hurt and sad.

Read the story. Total BS.

Okay, if you were just raped, you're not going to have a "list of demands" at the end of your "public statement."

There wasn't a single mention of any emotional feelings there, simply that he had sex with her while she was sleeping and she couldn't find her underwear when she ran out of the room. Total BS. I don't even listen to Gaza at all, don't even know much about them. But I can tell this is pretty fake. If you were raped (and I know how it goes, because I've helped multiple individuals RIGHT after the event, along with recovery years after.) it seems to almost always be DEEPLY emotional. Deeply scarring, deeply upsetting. I didn't see any of that here. Seems pretty empty to me.

I could be wrong, but based on the (sadly, I have it) experience I have helping out the unfortunate victims of rape I know, this story is totally out of the ordinary in terms of its lack of emotions and inherent pain. I'm calling it. I think it's fake.

Just a thought for all the psychologists on sputnik who are apparently so qualified to call bullshit on this because they've helped a friend who was also victimized: People react to things differently. Rape included.

I am highly skeptical of these allegations but I wouldn't write all of this off until I've heard more. I know girls like this and they are often fucking crazy. Who knows why she is going about it this way? Maybe she really does believe this is the strongest most independent way to do it.

I just can't help but laugh at all the men in here saying "Yeah she isn't feeling enough pain, must be bullshit." I love Gaza, I think this story is false, but try to not be such a fucking idiot about it if your going to try and play the intellectual card.

No other bed and no sleeping bag or blanket pillow for the floor maybe? maybe it was cold as fuck and there was no heating? maybe he just jumped in and she didnt want to cause a huge problem if he wasnt going to be a dick about it? I dunno, I've slept in beds with people without fucking them.

Yep, because when a woman gets raped, she just REALLY needs to get laid afterwards.

"I believe this woman is faking it. I know numerous individuals who have been raped and they keep their stories shut up tighter than the Hoover Dam. It's not something they tell really anyone about because they feel deeply ashamed and hurt by it. No way would they ever go on Tumblr, or any public forum, and talk about it. Heck, they don't even go to police because they're so hurt and sad."

This so fucking hard. I said something along these lines on that status and some idiot called me a misogynistic asshole. lol.

if there was a witness to the aftermath, and he supposedly still has her underwear, this can push her case in the right direction with authorities. working in media and taking her story to tumblr just makes it seem like she's trying to get attention. or maybe she's just that hxc punk anarchy br00tal that she doesn't give a shit about the cops and just wants to humiliate the dude

There are links on the article dawg. Also: people (or, for the purposes of this conversation, women; i
am aware that men can and do get raped also) react to rape differently. There is no one 'right' way to
react, and it's shit-sure not anyone here's place to decide if a victim went about things the 'right'
way or not because that's bullshit.

Okay so it happened once. Doesn't make it a culture.

This woman is also a feminist. Not that there is anything inherently wrong with that, nor does it make what that judge did okay (he's an idiot obviously) but she's obviously very very biased towards men as a gender. Like I said, some of the things in that article linked are true, but a huge chunk of it is completely ridiculous.

love this comment:

After doing some google digging on Jeana Marie Harris AKA amindfullofyou, I think I've figured out why she won't go to the cops. It's because she has quite the arrest record for defacing public property, destroying private property, and assault of a public servant, so her case would probably get thrown out on credibility issues alone. This girl is so full of shit, her eyes are brown.

Dude 1.i'm a feminist too don't be dissin' and 2. it's nothing to do with being biased against men as a gender, it's more nuanced than that; it's about recognising the way the frameworks on which societies are based subjugate and regulate females (and people of colour, people on the LGBTQ* spectrum etc.) unfairly. And the idea that women 'deserve it' because they wear revealing clothing is part and parcel of that egregious subjugation, and that an 11yo girl can be treated that way is indicative of how pervasive this culture of 'slut-shaming' really is

Like normally, I'd be sensitive about this because it hits REALLY close to home to me. Closer than I ever thought possible. I don't want to call someone who claims this to be making crap up.

But it's super obvious in this case. If it's legitimate rape, then I'll be SUPREMELY surprised.

Yeah I get that, and I agree. I'm not saying she SHOULD have gone to the police. I'm just saying, based on the people I personally know who deal with this daily, it is a very very sensitive matter and nothing they would EVER announce on some public forum like Tumblr. And if they did it would be far more full of emotion than just describing how she got her clothes and then demanding a list of actions from the band, etc.
It seems pretty obviously fake to me. I could be totally wrong, but I think there's a 95%+ chance this is doctored and false. Especially since apparently she made a post like two weeks prior about how she just wanted to get laid more than anything... Which tells me that she wouldn't say no to sex with a guy that she was already sleeping in the same room with. Seems a little weird to me. But I dunno.

1. My comment explicitly said "not that there's anything inherently wrong with that." and 2. I never said feminism was against men as a gender, I said the writer of the article was. And a lot of women do treat it that way too, at least from what I've seen. I know what feminism is supposed to be, I just see a lot of women that take that notion a bit too far. I know women typically get treated unfairly, but sometimes they don't help their cause by generalizing all men as being pigs. The women that wrote that article made it seem like everything that society does is made to make women inferiors, and that's just simply not true.

Friends were. I didn't say everybody reacts that way, I said that people that are are typically quiet about it. I mean really, if a stranger were to force themselves into you, would you really want everybody to know that? My guess is probably not. Hence why the tumblr post was suspicious (along with other reasons.)

Asdfp277

Maybe she didn't want to disclose the details of the rape to the public in the months following it,
but after, I dunno', therapy, she overcomed whatever reason she had not to. But after months, the
evidence 'disappears', so she couldn't go to the police.

This is all hypothetical, though. Honestly, I don't believe a word of what she said, but it worth
considering it.

EDIT: ...And even then, there's a reason we don't slander people like that. Even rapists deserve a
fair trial.

I've met someone who was raped once.

That person was really quiet, she didn't want to talk about it at all, she was very closed off. I don't know much beyond that since I didn't want to push.

From what I read, that's the most common reaction there is, and it's typically along the lines of some sort of trauma, if not then they usually just continue with their lives while avoiding the topic all together and just pretend it never happened.

Who seriously would go to Tumblr, with a set list of demands, to announce to the world that she was raped just a few moments ago?

If this is a false report, I will frankly be livid. My girlfriend, sister, and several friends have been sexually assaulted, and I myself was accuse of rape by a girl who was obssessed with me. Everyone who knew me personally knew it wasn't true, but damn, word seems to really get around that the quiet guy who seems harmless violated a girl whose hymen is mysteriously still intact. Until she finally stood up a year later to tell it was all a lie, I was humiliated every day, and even nearly beaten to death by her family. That is the fucking power of a grandiose lie.

That may be so, but they're rare, to the point that it's better to just assume any case you see would unrable like this until proven otherwise.

And my point still stands, just, who would go to the internet to announce rape? At least before she even went to the cops? Did she even went to the cops at all?

Also put yourself an avy before everyone(Including me) start thinking you're another Skeletor alt.

She worded that last entry VERY carefully. Exactly how do you come to an agreement with someone you just put on blast for raping you in less than a day, but didn't before this? I hope he lawyers his ass up so he can take her to court. If for no other reason except to show that false allegations are harmful to those who have actually been raped. And to publicly clear his name. Forever, when Gaza comes to a town now, at least a few people will be thinking/saying "didn't that lead singer dude rape some chick?". This kind of shit sticks forever and it's the most humiliating thing to live through. To constantly have to defend yourself from whispers and stares. This whole thing makes me sick.
